Our Wedding Ceremony

Erin Fairchild Girl Gone Veggie Wedding Josh Fairchild State College

It’s a wedding recap!

Josh and I knew we wanted our wedding ceremony to be personalized and a reflection of us. We spent a lot of time writing our wedding vows and planning a unique wedding ceremony. Josh was raised Jewish and I was raised Christian so we wanted to find a way to blend the marriage traditions of both in a way that everyone could enjoy. State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham officiated and it

We left off with me getting in my dress. Let’s see what the guys were up to.

Playing pool! Josh’s groomsmen (and Nat!) were having fun in the hotel bar.

The bar was such a great backdrop for photos.

I loved getting to see these photos and see Josh’s reaction opening my present to him.

My dad delivered a book I had been working on for months called What I love

Happy Wedding Week! I’ve been married for three months now and am finally recapping our wedding. Time has flown and so much has changed since that day. We’re a quarter of the way through our newlywed year and it has been amazing. I couldn’t have picked a better life partner and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to start out the journey. We put so much time and effort into planning our

My Last Weekend in State College

Erin Smith Girl Gone Veggie Mad Mex State College

was spent in wonderful company. Josh, Lily, Pierce, and I went to Mad Mex for burritos and margaritas and had an amazing time. They leave for New York not long after we leave for Omaha!

Of course there was froyo involved.

There was plenty of other good food this weekend too. In between packing and running errands Josh and I grabbed salads from Fiddlehead. We also tried their new berry, green tea,

One Week Into Marriage…

and I love love love being married to my best friend. I’ve started to get some preview photos back from the best photographer ever. Redheaded Ninja is such a talent, and Michelle (her actual name), is a wonderful person and friend.

I can’t stop staring at my rings. I think they look so pretty together. It’s crazy to me that people who see me when I’m walking down the street can tell I’m

Our First Kiss Erin Smith Girl Gone Veggie Wedding

I’m married! This past week has been a whirlwind of celebration with family and friends, love, and very little sleep. I never really believed when brides and grooms would say their wedding day was absolutely perfect and/or the best day ever. I mean how can one day outshine all the others? But now I totally get it. Marrying Josh, and all the celebration involved, was absolutely perfect. I wouldn’t change a thing

Mizuno Wave Sayonara Review

Mizuno Wave Sayonara Girl Gone Veggie Erin Smith

It was a year ago that I first discovered my love of running. I’m not very fast, and I can’t run very far, but it feels so amazing to move. I looked forward to running as a chance to think through my thoughts and clear my mind. When anxiety started becoming an issue last winter I took a hiatus from running. When your mind is overrun with worries the last thing you need is more

T.J.Maxx Shopping Haul

Erin Smith Girl Gone Veggie Graduation Dress Shopping

So I’m not sure if you guys know this about me but I LOVE a bargain. I rarely pay retail for things because I have so much more fun finding them on sale. The T.J.Maxx in State College is the best T.J.Maxx I have ever been to. It is consistently stocked with designer clothes at discounted prices. I did so well on my last shopping trip there I felt like I had to share. If
